And its really a shame that you don't play older games just because of the graphics. :/ Especially Bioshock...what? That game still has some of the best graphics to date. And it's probably the most captivating game of this generation. There are still some older TR games I haven't finished, but I will play them. Not because of nostalgia, but because they're genuinely fun and challenging. But there is seriously nothing dated about Bioshock. You're confusing. :p

Loll its pretty stupid of me isn't it :o I forgot to add, I even downloaded TR 1 and TRC and still couldn't get through them. Its the controls of Lara where you have to stop just to turn left. And instead of getting rid of Bioshock I kept it cause I feel like i'm going to end up likeing it perhaps after Bioshock Infinite. Inifinite is going to be my Tomb Raider Legend.

I dig Lara's character in Legend, but it is so bleh in Anniversary and Underworld.
And I thought this too. I can understand Anniversary Lara being different because she hadn't experienced everythink she had towards the point of Legend so she would have had a different attitude anyway. But Underworld might have been because there was no head set so we never got to see the sarcastic comments Lara would make to Alister.

Yes, it is unfortunate that Lara's appearance is very little stylish. We have not seen a version of Lara without mud yet.

I am still trying to find who's the box art designer besides Brian Horton. I love there's still a reminicence of Karl Stewart on it, since looks like:

The gun's circle from James Bond (I mean, the cave circled form)

plus the typical Batman pose from The Dark Knight

The guy who did the Dark Knight Rises, did the TR cover.

Evan C. 07-11-12 14:15

What's his name, btw? :)

just*raidin*tomb 07-11-12 14:18

I don't know. It's on the website or blog I believe. When they released it. Or just google it. :p

CiaKonwerski 07-11-12 22:29

Saw a couple posters of the wonderful TR today at a local GameStop. Glad to see it being recognized. :)

Is it just me or is this video more crisp than the other ones from E3 2012?:confused:

You mean the actual footage of the game? Yeah, it does seem nice and clear (for once).

No it's not. It's the water droplets that morph her face in a frame of the video.

And that video isn't as clear as my download. :p

Hey, when will the new Tomb Raider come out? It's been a long time since I last checked some video game related news. O_O

Thanky-tanky in advance - PEACE!!!

Vinkula 08-11-12 20:16

5th of March 2013

SwankyCashGurl 08-11-12 20:25

ARGHH and a BOOOH!

Eons, those will be some kinky eons of waiting and eating that will grind my gears till I get the game into my clammy hands. What shall I do in the meantime?

Is there anything special about this game? I mean, is there something revolutionary about it? Did the peeps from Core Dynamics have already shown some gameplay vids?

Sorry for being a bother to you folks.

Vinkula 08-11-12 20:37

Crystal Dynamics*

And yes, there are plenty of gameplay videos. And it's a fresh start for Lara, from that point, it's a huge thing for us and TR.

klona 08-11-12 20:45

Yeah, and it's going to be like...
The Game of the Century.

Snap! Didn't know about this until now. So they are wearing the same reboot panties as good, ol' Hollwood does?! GEEZ!

Pretty much. But they had this planned way before all this other rebooted stuff surfaced. Way back soon after Underworld was released.

leglion 08-11-12 23:21

Yes, Tomb raider is the trend starter, darlings. Tomb raider does a reboot, so does everything else. Tomb Raider makes the iconic weapon the bow, so does everything else. Far Cry 3 was like, i saw Lara croft in army pants, a tank top, with a jade necklace so i got army pants, a tank top, with a jade necklace. http://www.zootycoonunleashed.com/ZT...ault/nails.gif

After seeing the latest Far Cry 3 trailer, it's arguably exactly the same aside from some from the characters and the fact that Tomb Raider isn't full open world like Far Cry 3 is. I've seen more impressive things from Far Cry 3 though...

You've got to be kidding. The character models look so generic, it is really hard to develop any emotions towards them. I guess this is the price for having such a big world. Also the game is full of cliches, typically found in action movies. At least TR has never gone where it has now.

edit: To be fair http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaGSSrp49uc, it looks quite interesting, but c'mon the kidnapped girlfriend story is kinda lame, but TR's story is not too different so far :p.

True that! :D :cln:

"Step Into Insanity", "Definiton of Insanity" "Insanity", "Insanity"! Boy they sure like talking about insanity. Boring... Next please.

Looks like copycats exist in the gaming industry as well :p

I'm talking about gameplay. Not story (at least in regards to thinking Far Cry 3 looks better). Far Cry has shown way more depth in gameplay than Tomb Raider has. And I never even mentioned character models... and the game is damn beautiful to be open world. Including the character models. And the similarities are there. Saving your friends and escaping a dangerous island? Yeah.

I guess that it's a glitch. Maybe she will get a machete later on :D.
